Help us celebrate our 40th Birthday
In 1981 Umina Podiatry opened for business in a rented room adjacent to a Vet in West Street. Since that time we have seen a long list of podiatrists who have worked in the business, along with fantastic support staff on the front desk, and podiatry students who have learned from us. The practice has changed hands from the founder Gary Brewin, to Stephanie Vidler through the 1990’s, and current owner Damian Gough. For many years we were located in Trafalgar Avenue, on the corner of Cambridge Street, and moved to the current premises in 2011.
These images from Google Maps show our premises in Trafalgar Avenue in 2008, our current location in Bullion Street prior to renovation in 2010, and how it looks now in 2021.
Our intention was to have a big party day in October, but that will have to wait until restrictions allow. In the meantime we have been remembering the long list of people that have worked with us. See how many of these names you recognise.
Gary Brewin, Stephanie Vidler, Renee Lightfoot, Damian Gough, Cath Nankervis (Burke), Liz Madden, Matt Frogley, Kane Feeney, Matt Shanahan, Sharon Crowther, Ellie McGuinness, Cathy Stevens, Jude Wills, Helen Mackman, Sarah Ardill, Ashlee Ballarin, Claire Linton, Paul Ledger, Tracy Caswell, Michelle Foley, Jolene Meaney, Gareth McIntyre, Julie Pollicina, Rebecca O’Farrell, Patrick Rodgers, Dwight Bilson.
